A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam, but this problem can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be set up with a few clicks if you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the same fashion and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or edit anything automatically.
